In response to government's proposals for the long-term Horizon Europe alternative Nicola Perrin MBE, CEO of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) said:

“It is disappointing that the UK has not yet secured association, but new detail on transition arrangements and a longer-term plan is welcome.

“International collaborations are crucial for charities, with charity-funded researchers partnering with teams in 108 countries.

“We hope that rapid resolution, and the Government’s commitment to funding, will provide the stability that researchers need to build and sustain partnerships crucial to deliver benefits to patients.

"Medical research charities are ready to help in delivery to ensure the transition plan is speedy and meets the needs of the research community.”
